MRB Vehicle Visibility

by

Description:
A follow up to my [page32773]MRB Air Visibility[/page].


This addon makes all wheeled and tracked vehicles in ArmA 3 visible across your set view-distance.
Originally these assets would only adhere to object view-distance, which for obvious reasons is no optimal solution.

In technical terms this addon puts all wheeled & tracked assets into "landmark" state.
(which is kinda underused anyway with only 4 or 5 objects taking advantage of it - the carrier being one of those for instance).

The engine hard limit on "landmarks" lies at 200 objects, according to the biki:

Installation:
To install MRB Vehicle Visibility you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Known issues:
- Unlike my AirVisibility Addon, using this one could actually hurt performance due to
the higher ammount of vehicles affected by the change.
- Whilst this enables you to see vehicles perfectly fine, you still cannot see any objects between
you and your target (depending on your object view distance), this might lead to wonky situations.

Decide for yourself if the benefits outweigh the downsides.
